Death Cab for Cutie on VH1 tomorrow night. Special Appearance by ValhallaRoom.

Don Gunn just sent me a link to one of his latest projects – mixing a live performance by Death Cab for Cutie that will be shown on VH1’s Storytellers this Friday at 9pm. A few links (which I can’t embed here for some reason, so just click ’em):

Storytellers Sneak Peak: Death Cab for Cutie

“Title and Registration”

Three instances of ValhallaRoom were used for mixing the live musical performances – two vocal reverbs (one long, one short) and a drum room reverb. Don was kind enough to share the .vpreset settings that he used:

It is nice to hear ValhallaRoom used in a live sound context, processing “real” instruments. Thanks, Don!
